  • NL Seminar- A Graph-Based Approach to String Regeneration [Intern talk]

    Wed, Jul 02, 2014 @ 02:30 PM - 03:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Matic Horvat, University of Cambridge

    Talk Title: A Graph-Based Approach to String Regeneration [Intern talk]

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: I'll talk about a graph based approach to the string regeneration problem, published at 2014 EACL Student Research Workshop. I will conclude my talk by briefly talking about my PhD research direction of including semantics (MRS) into a state-of-the-art SMT system.

    String regeneration is the problem of generating a fluent sentence from an unordered list of words. The purpose of investigating and developing approaches to solving the string regeneration problem is grammaticality and fluency improvement of machine generated text. I investigated a graph-based approach to the string regeneration problem that finds a permutation of words with the highest probability under an n-gram language model.




    Biography: I am a PhD student at University of Cambridge researching integration of semantics and Statistical Machine Translation. I am originally from Ljubljana, Slovenia, where I completed a BSc in Computer Science in 2012. I continued with a masters in Advanced Computer Science at University of Cambridge, graduating in 2013.

  • NL Seminar- Factored Markov Translation with Robust Modeling

    Fri, Jul 11, 2014 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Yang Feng, USC/ISI

    Talk Title: Factored Markov Translation with Robust Modeling

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Phrase-based translation models usually memorize local translation literally and make independent assumption between phrases which makes it neither generalize well on unseen data nor model sentence-level effects between phrases. We present a new method to model correlations between phrases as a Markov model and meanwhile employ a robust smoothing strategy to provide better generalization. This method defines a recursive estimation process and backs off in parallel paths to infer richer structures. Our evaluation shows an 1.1–3.2% BLEU improvement over competitive baselines for Chinese-English and Arabic-English translation.



    Biography: Yang Feng is a postdoctoral scholar in Kevin Knight's NLP group in USC/ISI. She got her Ph.D. degree in 2011 from Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her interests are machine translation and machine learning, focusing on Bayesian inference and Gaussian process. Now her main work is to improve ISI syntax-based system.

  • On the relation between the psychological and thermodynamic arrows of time

    Fri, Jul 18, 2014 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Todd A. Brun, USC, Associate Professor

    Talk Title: On the relation between the psychological and thermodynamic arrows of time

    Series: AISeminar

    Abstract: Why do we remember the past, and not the future? Why do we perceive time as flowing, with a fixed past separated from an indefinite future by an instantaneous moment known as `now?' This perception is the psychological arrow of time. In this talk I will lay out an argument that generically the psychological arrow of time should align with the thermodynamic arrow of time where that arrow is well defined. This argument applies to any physical system that can act as a memory, in the sense of preserving a record of the state of some other system. This result follows from two principles: the robustness of the thermodynamic arrow of time to small perturbations in the state, and the principle that a memory should not have to be fine-tuned to match the state of the system being recorded. This argument applies even if the memory system itself is completely reversible and nondissipative. I make the argument using a paradigmatic system, and then formulate it more broadly for any system that can be considered a memory, illustrating it with a few examples.

    Biography: Todd A. Brun received his Ph.D. in Physics from Caltech in 1994, and then held a variety of postdoctoral positions at the University of London, the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, working on various aspects of quantum theory. Since 2003, he has been a faculty member in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Southern California, where he works on quantum computers and quantum information science. As a hobby, he thinks about the nature of time.

    Fri, Jul 18, 2014 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jonathan May, USC/ISI

    Talk Title: An Arabizi-English Social Media Statistical Machine Translation System

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: We present a machine translation engine that can translate romanized Arabic, often known as Arabizi, into English. With such a system we can, for the first time, translate the massive amounts of Arabizi that are generated every day in the social media sphere but until now have been uninterpretable by automated means. We accomplish our task by leveraging a machine translation system trained on non-Arabizi social media data and a weighted finite-state transducer-based Arabizi-to-Arabic conversion module, equipped with an Arabic character-based n-gram language model. The resulting system allows high capacity on-the-fly translation from Arabizi to English. We demonstrate via several experiments that our performance is quite close to the theoretical maximum attained by perfect deromanization of Arabizi input. This constitutes the first presentation of an end-to-end social media Arabizi-to-English translation system.


    Biography: Jonathan May is a computer scientist at USC-ISI, where he also received a PhD in 2010. His current focus areas are in machine translation, machine learning, and natural language understanding. Jonathan co-developed and patented a highly portable method for optimizing thousands of features in machine translation systems that has since been incorporated into all leading open source MT systems. He has previously worked in automata theory and information extraction and at SDL Language Weaver and BBN Technologies.

  • A Power Efficient Reconfigurable System-in-Stack: 3D Integration of Accelerators, FPGAs, and DRAM

    Thu, Jul 24, 2014 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Aravind Dasu, Computer Scientist/USC Information Sciences Institute

    Talk Title: A Power Efficient Reconfigurable System-in-Stack: 3D Integration of Accelerators, FPGAs, and DRAM

    Abstract: Increasing computing power efficiency has become more important as more applications are moving to mobile platforms, which tend to have a limited power available. Being able to perform a wide variety of computations efficiently is especially important for power constrained embedded applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which may not be able to send the data out for processing and must perform some of the processing on-board. This paper describes a 3D FPGA-DRAM architecture that can not only deliver the necessary flexibility, by using FPGAs, but also provide the computing efficiency in the form of floating-point arithmetic accelerators that is required for UAVs. We examine the efficiency of this system in 65 nm, 90 nm, and 130nm CMOS technologies and report simulation results showing a peak computing efficiency of 28.94GFLOPs/W for a 4,096 point 1 dimensional FFT and 25.03 GFLOPs/W for a 1,024 point ? 1,024 point 2 dimensional FFT.

    Biography: Dr. Aravind Dasu is a Computer Scientist at the USC Information Sciences Institute in Arlington, Virginia. He received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University in 2004 and has since worked in the area of reconfigurable computing. His current specialization is in 3D stacking, trusted hardware, and architecture design for FPGAs. Over the past 16 years he has been a PI, CoPI, and Key personnel in R&D projects funded by NASA, Micron, ARM, Motorola, DoE, Lockheed Martin, Utah Governors Office , and DARPA with over $6,000,000 in research grants. He has over forty publications, supervised several graduate students & full time staff. He has served various government agencies such as NASA, the NSF, the National Nuclear Security Administration, and the Department of Energy for program and proposal reviews. His current business development focus is an initiative to build a Center of Excellence in 3D stacked adaptive computing at USC & ISI through strategic relationships with the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, and Industry.

  • AI Seminar-Fast algorithms for nearest neighbor classification

    Fri, Jul 25, 2014 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Sanjoy Dasgupta, UCSD

    Talk Title: Fast Algorithms for Nearest Neighbor Classification

    Series: Artificial Intelligence Seminar

    Abstract: Nearest neighbor (NN) search is one of the simplest and most enduring methods of statistical estimation. We examine its algorithmic complexity via two results.
    1. Randomized tree structures for fast NN search
    The k-d tree was one of the first spatial data structures proposed for NN search. Its efficacy is diminished in high-dimensional spaces, but several variants, with randomization and overlapping cells, have proved to be successful in practice. We analyze three such schemes. We show that the probability that they fail to find the nearest neighbor, for any data set and any query point, is directly related to a simple potential function that captures the difficulty of the point configuration. We then bound this potential function in several situations of interest: when the data are drawn from a doubling measure; when the data and query distributions are identical and are supported on a set of bounded doubling dimension; and when the data are documents from a topic model.
    2. Data structures that adapt to a query distribution
    Can we leverage learning techniques to build a fast NN retrieval data structure? We present a general learning framework for the NN problem in which sample queries are used to learn the parameters of a data structure that minimize the retrieval time and/or the miss rate. We explore the potential of this framework through two popular NN data structures: k-d trees and the rectilinear structures employed by locality sensitive hashing. We derive a generalization theory for these data structure classes and present simple learning algorithms for both. Experimental results reveal that learning often improves on the already strong performance of these data structures.
    This is joint work with Lawrence Cayton, Eugene Che, Kaushik Sinha, and Zhen Zhai.

    Biography: Sanjoy Dasgupta is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego. He received his PhD from Berkeley in 2000, and spent two years at AT&T Research Labs before joining UCSD. His area of research is algorithmic statistics, with a focus on unsupervised and minimally supervised learning. He is the author of a textbook, "Algorithms" (with Christos Papadimitriou and Umesh Vazirani), that appeared in 2006.

    Information Sciences Institute

    Speaker: Daniel Lamprecht, Graz University of Technology

    Talk Title: Navigation Dynamics in Networks

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Research on networks has already revealed much about the structure of real-world networks. Network dynamics such as navigation or exploration, however, are something less well-researched. Yet, we constantly design and use networked systems meant for navigation and exploration. In this talk, I will present a short overview of what we know about navigability, followed by the our work on exploring dynamics occurring on recommendation networks - networks formed implicitly by recommender systems. Navigability can serve as an evaluation criterion for recommender systems and reveal to what extent a system supports navigation and exploration. Based on analysis of topology and dynamical processes, we find that current systems do not support navigation very well, and propose techniques to overcome this.



    Biography: Daniel Lamprecht is a PhD student at Graz University of Technology and is interning at ISI this summer. His research explores network science, web science and recommender systems and especially focuses on network navigability. This summer, he's working with Kristina Lerman on navigation dynamics and click biases in Wikigames. In the past, he has also studied navigation dynamics in information networks with the aid of biomedical ontologies.

    This course teaches you the advanced problem-solving skills you will need in order to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements and quantify the resulting savings. Project assignments between sessions require you to apply what you’ve learned. This course is presented in three five-day sessions over a three-month period.

    Learn the advanced problem-solving skills you need to implement the principles, practices and techniques of Six Sigma to maximize performance and cost reductions in your organization. During this three-week practitioner course, you will learn how to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements and quantify the resulting savings. You will be required to complete a project demonstrating mastery of appropriate analytical methods and pass an examination to earn USC and IIE's Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate. This practitioner course for Six Sigma implementation provides extensive coverage of the Six Sigma process as well as intensive exposure to the key analytical tools associated with Six Sigma, including project management, team skills, cost analysis, FMEA, basic statistics, inferential statistics, sampling, goodness of fit testing, regression and correlation analysis, reliability, design of experiments, statistical process control, measurement systems analysis and simulation. Computer applications are emphasized.

    Talk Title: Computational Modeling of Bottom-up and Top-Down Visual Attention

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Over the last two decades, the inter-disciplinary fields of visual attention and saliency have attracted a lot of interest in cognitive sciences, computer vision, robotics, and machine learning. The high complexity of natural environments requires the primate visual system to combine, in a highly dynamic and adaptive manner, sensory signals that originate from the environment (bottom-up) with behavioral goals and priorities dictated by the task at hand (top-down). I will talk about my recent research in two directions: 1) Bottom-up attention: I will give a snapshot of biological findings on visual attention (e.g., how gaze direction of people in a scene influences eye movements of an external observer), theoretical background on saliency concepts, our model benchmark and saliency models, and 2) Top-down attention: I will describe our neuromorphic algorithms to predict, in a task-independent manner, which elements in a video scene might more strongly attract the gaze of a human. Multi-modal data including bottom-up saliency, "gist" or global context, physical actions and object properties (using example recorded eye movements and videos of humans engaged in various 3D video games, including flight combat, driving, first-person shooting, running a hot-dog stand that serves hungry customers) are utilized to associate particular scenes with particular locations of interest, given the task (e.g., when the task is to drive, if the scene depicts a road turning left, the system learns to look at that left turn). Finally, I will present some successful engineering and clinical applications of our models.

    Biography: Ali Borji received the BS and MS degrees in computer engineering from the Petroleum University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, 2001 and Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran, 2004, respectively. He received the PhD degree in computational neurosciences from the Institute for Studies in Fundamental Sciences (IPM) in Tehran, 2009. He then spent a year at University of Bonn as a postdoc. He has been a postdoctoral scholar at iLab, University of Southern California, Los Angeles since March 2010.

    His research interests include computer vision, machine learning, and neurosciences with particular emphasis on visual attention, visual search, active learning, scene and object recognition, and biologically plausible vision models.
